My Problem

My Iphone 5s developed a microphone issue after a few months of use. I couldn't be heard when making a phone call unless I used my speakerphone. I tried dealing with my cellphone carrier on a repair or replacement as it was under warranty. They sent me a "like new" replacement however this "new" phone had more problems then my original. They said they had to work out the replacement phone issues with Apple Care next, otherwise there is nothing else they can do for me. To make a long story short, I told them to pound sand and returned the replacement phone and switched back to my iPhone 4s for the time being. One day I decided I really want to get back to my 5s so I looked into repairing it and found this website.

My Fix

The repair went pretty well. The step by step guide was a big help, wouldn't have tried it without it. The guide was missing a couple steps at the end of the tear down however. There are two more parts that need to be removed from the original lightning connector and headphone jack assembly. There is a small bracket that the home button connection is glued to that has to be removed and installed on the replacement, and the microphone has a small rubber boot around it that has to removed and installed over the replacement microphone. Likely through my research another reviewer point this out so I didn't miss it. Otherwise the repair went just fine with the guide. I was a little mad that the required flat headed screwdriver was mentioned in the guide but not included in the required tools list. I was able to make a screwdriver I had work but I would have liked to have the right size for the job. The only mistakes I had were I got a connector that was next to the battery stuck under the logic board when I was reassembling and didn't notice until I had the board all screwed down. So I had to removed the logic board twice but likely there was no damage. I also had a hard time getting the home button reconnected as the small amount of adhesive wouldn't stick after being removed from the original connector. And I couldn't for the life of me get the securing clip for the home button connection to hook on to the metal hooks on the backside of the connector. I could only snap it in the front which with a little pull pops it out. I spent a good hour trying to hook this clip and ended up just snapping it in the front and putting the phone back together. Not too worried as everything is pretty tight in the phone and its not coming apart again unless something else dies. Overall, I'm glad I decided to purchased the parts and tools and make the repair. Phone is working just like new now.

My Advice

My advice would to purchase all the required tools mentioned in the guide including the flat head screwdriver (2.5mm?). The screws are UNBELIEVABLY small and need these designed magnetic screwdrivers to make it work. Also you will be wise to lay out the steps requiring removal of parts and screws on a piece of paper with some clear or white tape to stick the small parts to so you don't lose them during the repair. Also helps you lay out the screws in order so you don't mix them up when it comes time to reassemble. The website sells a magnetic white board for this purchase if you are only doing the one repair then so some paper and tape work just fine. Also I would advise to just take your time and don't force anything. It took me probably 5 hours from start to finish with 1 hour wasted with trying to hook that clip securing the home button connection. The only thing I wished I had known before I did the repair was about needing the flat head screwdriver, partly my fault as it was mentioned in the guide but wasn't in the tools list so I didn't purchase it, next time I will buy it.

My Problem

Whenever I received a call or tried use my phone when my battery life was approximately 50%, the phone would immediately die. After plugging my phone into a charger (on several occasions) I noticed my battery life was at 0%, from 50% to 0% every time.

My Fix

The repair went great thanks to the video on IFIXIT. Problem solved!

My Advice

Thanks for the help!

My Problem

My speakerphone stopped working a few weeks ago.

My Fix

It went smoother than I expected. I found out that prior repairs had not been done properly, which makes me question even allowing third party places to fix my device. After a few attempts I realized I had found the lost screw within my iphone. I managed to complete the repair within 20 minutes.

My Advice

take your time and don't worry too much.

My Problem

Ear piece speaker did not work due to moisture corrosion

My Fix

Step by step instructions were spot on.

My Advice

This unit has some moisture damage and Apple quoted $315 for repair. This $25 repair fixed it all.

I did have to remove some corrosion from the speaker connector but an eraser on the end of a pencil took care of that, followed up with some alcohol to clean it off. Plugging the connectors back onto the main board can take a couple of tries. Be patient and it will all go fine.

My Problem

Both phones (iPhone 5 and Moto X) had batteries older than 2 years and required frequent charging.

My Fix

Both phones were relatively easy to repair. Your guides and uTube videos were very helpful. Also other uTube videos not from ifixit were informative as well. Be very careful to check the iPhone power switch cable connector, took me 2 additional disassemblies before I got it right. Both repairs went great, saved a ton of money and did not have to switch phones.

My Advice

Take your time and don't force anything. Make sure you are getting a new battery. People are selling used batteries on eBay and Amazon.

My Problem

my iPhone 3s stopped charging , I did get it to charge a little on a fluke , but my desk top did not recognize it to retrieve some old pic's and videos. I tried the apple store first , with no luck ( phone was to old ) then I said to myself i need to some how find the old parts and fix it my self , the rest is history ... stumbled on IFIXIT (almost paid twice as much at another repair site )

My Fix

I figured because it wasn't charging right , the charging port was the way to go , your website was really easy to follow , the part I needed was a Dock connector and a couple of basic tools , and one call for encouragement I was on my way ....

My Advice

what a cool experience , I thought it was gonna be hard , it was really kind of fun ,your step by step instruction pic's and videos ,made it hard to go wrong ... after all was said and done it works perfect , and retrieved all my old videos pic's etc. how cool is that ??? if ya want to call this advice ... how I prepared my work area ,I tapped a large paper towel on my desk and then , put a piece of duct tape ,sticky side up tapping it down securely and drew a ruff out line of the phone , so I could put all the tiny screws where they they wouldn't get mixed up... it worked great ... it took me 1 hour and 10 min's .I guess that's pretty good for a first time phone fixer ... the end result priceless ........

My Problem

Front panel cassé!!

My Fix

Bien été mais il faut faire attention de pas trop chauffer avec le heat gun!! Regarder aussi le vidéo en plus des étapes!

My Advice

Suivre les étapes et prendre sont temps!!

My Problem

De camera aan de achterkant was zo vies geworden aan de binnenkant dat foto's steeds slechter werden.

My Fix

Ik heb met het filmpje om de camera te vervangen de iPhone opengemaakt. De iSlack was daarbij erg hndig. Verder veel gepiel en goed opletten. In elkaar zetten was nog de grootste uitdaging door de erg kleine schroefjes. Wel gelukt.

My Advice

Geduld. Let er op dat de schroefjes zeer klein zijn en snel vallen. Zorg dus voor een opstaande rand aan je tafel of een bak waardoor je de schroefjes niet steeds hoeft te zoeken.

My Problem

Me and the wife were getting ready to watch a DVD when the machine thought it was time to die. This is an original PS3 so I wasn't ready for it to go.

My Fix

I followed this sites YLOD guide and it went extremly smooth and easy. It took me around 2-3 hours total but that is because I was inspecting everything while cleaning the dust off of an eight year collection. When it can time to fix the motherboard, that was the only time I was nervous. I did take another fixit users suggestion of using the oven first (heat the oven to 250 degrees celsius, shutting off the oven and putting the motherboard inside for 7 minutes). Most people suggested using a heat gun on a setting of 250 degrees celsius. I did have access to a heat gun with two settings. The coldest being over 500 degrees celcius. So I heated the CPU and GPU for 7 seconds or so shorter then suggested. Put it all back together and wasn't expecting it to work, but it started up fine and is working. Oh, I also switched out the power supply with the cooler running model.

My Advice

Just take your time, separate the screws into muffin tins and follow this guide and everything should work fine. Only time will tell how long this fix will last though. But getting anything extra out of it now is a bonus to me.

My Problem

Authorized Surface Technician for several brands of Laptop/Tablet/Phones

Our current tools where rubbish, some of them 15 years old.

My Fix

Great, the tools where ordered Friday evening, and arrived by lunch time Monday....In New Zealand, great job iFixt on getting the order ready and shipped so quick.

So far all the tools have been great, the wooden case for the 54 bit driver kit looks amazing.

My Advice

The "friction-less" ratchet was a little disappointing, it has far to much friction to use it for most of the screws the 54 bit driver kit fit.
